New Jersey Man Sentenced To Prison For Heroin Trafficking

     The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a 37-year-old New Jersey man was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison yesterday by U.S. District Court Judge Malachy E. Mannion for possession with intent to distribute heroin in Kingston, Pennsylvania, on January 3, 2014.

     According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, the defendant, George Wormley, on May 1, 2014, pleaded guilty to committing the offense.

     Wormley was indicted by a grand jury on March 25, 2014, as a result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Kingston Police.

     Judge Mannion also ordered Wormley to be placed on supervised release for three years after serving his prison sentence, and to pay a $100 special assessment.

     The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Francis P. Sempa.
